Android 10 sensor bug

Android 10 Affected by a Bad Bug that No One can Fix

There’s a serious problem with Android 10, which wreaks havoc on its functionality and it seems nobody can fix it, either…

Android 10 is currently compatible with eight Pixel phones: Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 3a XL. That’s certainly enough devices to gain a measure of its performance. Unfortunately, owners of said phones are experiencing some major issues. Worse still, there’s no real fix for their problems. 

Android 10 Unfix-able Sensor Bug Plaguing Device Owners

Apparently, there’s an Android 10 sensor issue which disrupts some of a phone’s core functions. “Auto-rotation, auto-brightness, active edge, double-tap to wake do not work in 10,” a Google forum post reads.

It’s seemingly plaguing mobile devices updated to Android 10, regardless of how it is installed. (There are two ways to upgrade from the previous version.)

There are other comments on various forums which complain about sensor issues. Right now, the only way to fix these problems is to revert to a prior Android version, including the Android 10 beta release or going back to Android version 9.

Google did respond to users, posting a reply on the Issue Tracker thread. So, at least the company is aware of the issue and will hopefully roll out a fix soon.
